Also known as:  Tizanidine.


Generic Zanaflex is an agonist at (alpha) 2-adrenergic receptor sites and presumably reduces spasticity by increasing presynaptic inhibition of motor neurons. In animal models, Generic Zanaflex has no direct effect on skeletal muscle fibers or the neuromuscular junction, and no major effect on monosynaptic spinal reflexes. The effects of Generic Zanaflex are greatest on polysynaptic pathways. The overall effect of these actions is thought to reduce facilitation of spinal motor neurons.

The imidazoline chemical structure of Generic Zanaflex is related to that of the anti-hypertensive drug clonidine and other (alpha) 2 -adrenergic agonists. Pharmacological studies in animals show similarities between the two compounds, but Generic Zanaflex was found to have one-tenth to one-fiftieth (1/50) of the potency of clonidine in lowering blood pressure.

Zanaflex is also known as Tizanidine, Sirdalud.

Generic name of Generic Zanaflex is Tizanidine-Oral.

Brand name of Generic Zanaflex is Zanaflex.


You should take it by mouth.

It usually is taken two or three times a day.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Generic Zanaflex suddenly.


If you overdose Generic Zanaflex and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

zanaflex pill identification

The aim of the present study was to determine whether tizanidine, an alpha2-adrenoceptor agonist, is able to increase the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects of naproxen and ketorolac with a low incidence of gastric injury and spontaneous activity in rats. The anti-inflammatory effect was assayed in a carrageenan test, and oral administration of tizanidine (ED40 =0.94±0.2mg/kg), naproxen (ED40=3.18±0.4mg/kg), and ketorolac (ED40=16.4±1.9mg/kg) showed a dose-dependent effect on inflammation. The anti-nociceptive effect was assayed in the formalin test, and administration of tizanidine (ED40=0.39±0.06mg/kg, p.o.), naproxen (ED40=33.9±3.9mg/kg, p.o.) or ketorolac (ED40=6.49±1mg/kg, p.o.) each showed a dose-dependent anti-nociceptive effect. The effects of combinations of tizanidine/naproxen and tizanidine/ketorolac were determined considering their ED40 at a rate of 1:1. Additionally, the tizanidine/naproxen and tizanidine/ketorolac combinations showed anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects. The tizanidine/ketorolac combination was more potent than tizanidine/naproxen, in both inflammatory (interaction index=0.03 tizanidine/ketorolac and 0.07 tizanidine/naproxen) and nociceptive (interaction index=0.005 tizanidine/ketorolac and 0.01 tizanidine/naproxen) processes. In both cases, tizanidine improved naproxen and ketorolac gastrointestinal tolerability by 50%. Furthermore, co-administration of tizanidine with naproxen or ketorolac did not modify the spontaneous activity in the same way as individual tizanidine administration. Considering that tizanidine increases the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects of naproxen or ketorolac, with an increase in gastric tolerability, tizanidine could provide therapeutic advantages in the clinical treatment of inflammation and pain.

Based upon the currently available evidence in patients with RA, benzodiazepines (diazepam and triazolam) do not appear to be beneficial in improving pain over 24 hours or one week. The non-benzodiazepine agent zopiclone also did not significantly reduce pain over two weeks. However, even short term muscle relaxant use (24 hours to 2 weeks) is associated with significant adverse events, predominantly drowsiness and dizziness.

zanaflex tablets 4mg

The antinociceptive actions of morphine and tizanidine (an alpha 2-adrenergic agonist) administered intrathecally in a rat model of mononeuropathic pain were investigated. Tizanidine increased to normal levels the intensity of a noxious pressure stimulus required to induce paw withdrawal (p < 0.01) and decreased the duration of limb withdrawal from both normal-temperature and cooled floors in a dose-dependent manner (p < 0.01). Tizanidine had virtually no effect on the latency of paw withdrawal from a noxious heat stimulus. In comparison, morphine significantly decreased, in a dose-dependent manner, limb withdrawal from the normal-temperature and cooled floors and increased to cutoff values the withdrawal latencies of both noxious heat and pressure stimuli (p < 0.01). The effect of tizanidine was limited to the hyperalgesic limb and served to normalize reactive latencies, whereas morphine affected both hindlimbs and increased latencies to supranormal cutoff values. These data suggest that intrathecal tizanidine may be more specific than morphine in reversing the allodynia and hyperpathia associated with neuropathic pain states and may be of value in the management of patients with these clinical syndromes.

Tizanidine hydrochloride (Zanaflex), an alpha 2-adrenoreceptor agonist, is the first new antispasticity agent to become available in the UK for more than 20 years. It provides effective reduction of spasticity without affecting muscle strength. The mechanisms of spasticity, its measurement and management, together with the place of tizanidine in its treatment, were discussed at a symposium held at the Royal College of Physicians on November 13 1997.

PLP1-related disorders are inherited in an X-linked manner. De novo pathogenic variants have been reported. Males with the PMD phenotype do not reproduce; males with the SPG2 phenotype may reproduce. All daughters of a male proband will be carriers; no sons will inherit the pathogenic variant. All sons of a female carrier are at a 50% risk of inheriting the pathogenic variant and having the disease; all daughters are at a 50% risk of being carriers. Carrier testing for at-risk relatives and prenatal testing for pregnancies at increased risk are possible in families in which the PLP1 pathogenic variant has been identified.

Infarction volumes and infarction ratios of the Tizanidine group 1/2 hours before ischemia (143.7+/-6.34 mm3 and 10.1+/-0.43%) and the Tizanidine group 2 hours after ischemia (145.6+/-6.32 mm3 and 10.3+/-0.43%) were found to be significantly lower in favor of the Tizanidine groups when compared with those of the control group (173.9+/-6.38 mm3 and 12,4+/-0.41%). Tizanidine is not effective if used just after reperfusion or later.

zanaflex generic availability

For localized/segmental spasticity, botulinum toxin type A is established as an effective treatment to reduce spasticity in the upper and lower extremities. There is conflicting evidence regarding functional improvement. Botulinum toxin type A was found to be generally safe in children with cerebral palsy; however, the Food and Drug Administration is presently investigating isolated cases of generalized weakness resulting in poor outcomes. No studies that met criteria are available on the use of phenol, alcohol, or botulinum toxin type B injections. For generalized spasticity, diazepam is probably effective in reducing spasticity, but there are insufficient data on its effect on motor function and its side-effect profile. Tizanidine is possibly effective, but there are insufficient data on its effect on function and its side-effect profile. There were insufficient data on the use of dantrolene, oral baclofen, and intrathecal baclofen, and toxicity was frequently reported.

This study evaluated Fos-like immunoreactivity in rat lumbar spinal cord neurons following peripheral noxious heat stimulation and the modifications induced by pharmacological agents. Under urethane anaesthesia, the hindpaw was stimulated by dipping it in a regulated temperature bath at various temperatures (44-65 degrees C) and for various durations (5 s to 2 min). There was no Fos-like immunoreactivity in lumbar spinal cord neurons when the paw was stimulated at 44 degrees C for 15 s. From 46 to 52 degrees C, the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons increased with increasing stimulation temperature, but was decreased at 65 degrees C as compared to 52 degrees C. At 52 degrees C, the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons increased with the duration of stimulation. Fos-like immunoreactive neurons in the L4 segment were almost exclusively located in laminae I-II. On the basis of the results of the latter experiments, we chose a stimulation of 52 degrees C for 15 s to perform pharmacological investigations. The number of Fos-like immunoreactive neurons induced by the heat stimulation was significantly decreased by pretreatment with morphine (42, 64 and 75% decrease as compared to control values after 2.5, 5 and 7.5 mg/kg i.v. respectively), and these effects were blocked by naloxone. When various stimulation intensities (46-52 degrees C) were used, the effects of morphine (5 mg/kg i.v.) were most marked when the temperature was highest. In morphine-tolerant rats, morphine (5 mg/kg i.v.) was half as potent in decreasing Fos-like immunoreactivity induced by the heat stimulation than in non-tolerant rats. RB 101, a systemically active mixed inhibitor of enkephalin-metabolising enzymes, significantly decreased Fos-like immunoreactivity induced by heat stimulation (19, 29 and 48% decreases as compared to control values at 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg i.v. respectively) and these effects were blocked by naloxone. Aspirin (150 mg/kg i.v.), proacetaminophen (300 mg/kg i.v.) and tizanidine, a centrally acting myorelaxant (0.25-1 mg/kg i.v.), had no effect on the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons induced by heat stimulation. The use of immunochemistry of the c-Fos protein as a pharmacological test in order to gauge antinociceptive effects at the dorsal horn level is discussed.

Data from three placebo-controlled and 11 active-controlled studies of tizanidine were combined to permit analysis of the subsets, which were too small to evaluate within the individual studies. Overall analysis of placebo-controlled data confirms the effectiveness of tizanidine in reducing muscle tone in patients with spasticity of spinal cord origin. Subset analyses suggest that patients with more severe spasticity are more likely to respond, but age, sex, and race were not predictive of response. Comparisons of tizanidine with active controls showed no differences in efficacy compared with baclofen or diazepam. However, when compared with controls, patients treated with tizanidine did not experience increased weakness. Furthermore, patients tolerated tizanidine better than the control medications. More patients experienced adverse events during tizanidine treatment than did patients receiving placebo. The most common adverse events reported were dry mouth, somnolence, asthenia, and dizziness. Mild elevations in liver function tests were noted occasionally, but improved in all patients with dose reduction or withdrawal. Three patients from the double-blind database reported formed visual hallucinations. All three cleared; two continued tizanidine, and one discontinued.

zanaflex pill

Baclofen, tizanidine and botulinum toxin A, agents used to treat disorders of muscle tone, have been studied as potential preventative treatments for migraine, tension-type headache and other related disorders. The most extensive work has been completed with botulinum toxin A. However, there is still a paucity of well controlled, clinical trials with this agent, and overall there have been conflicting and oftentimes equivocal results: studies of its use in migraine headache have suggested efficacy, whereas those of tension-type headache have not shown significant evidence of efficacy. There were few significant adverse events associated with the use of botulinum toxin A in these trials. The mechanism by which botulinum toxin A may work to prevent headache is not clear. Although changes in muscle tone may play a role in the effect of the drug, central mechanisms such as effects on neuropeptides involved in the pathogenesis of migraine may also be relevant. Further clinical trial work is in progress to help determine optimal administration schedules and choice of injection locations with botulinum toxin A for specific headache disorders. There has been limited study of the use of baclofen, an agent that acts centrally via GABA(A) receptors, in migraine and cluster headache, with only two open trials conducted to date. Both of these studies support the use of baclofen in the preventive treatment of headache.Tizanidine, which may have both a peripheral and a central mechanism in the locus ceruleus in migraine headache, has been studied in several clinical trials. Although the primary mechanism of action of this agent is, like clonidine, as an alpha-adrenoceptor agonist, it has little antihypertensive effect. Open trials of tizanidine have shown it to be useful in chronic headache. One well controlled trial, conducted as a follow-up to an open-label trial in the preventive treatment of chronic daily headache, reported tizanidine as having a statistically significant benefit over placebo. Also of interest is its use in conjunction with a long-acting NSAID to aid in the treatment of rebound headache accompanying the discontinuation of overused acute migraine therapies. In conclusion, though limited, the studies suggest the efficacy of botulinum toxin A, baclofen and tizanidine in primary headache disorders.

A total of 44 patients with U-MND were referred for discussion of ITB therapy. Baseline and outcomes data were extracted on 35 patients from a clinical spasticity registry at a tertiary referral center. Patients choosing to initiate ITB (n = 20) were compared with those choosing conservative therapy (n = 15).

zanaflex and alcohol

Intrathecal tizanidine, clonidine, or the combinations increased the tail-flick latency in dose- and time-dependent fashion without affecting motor function. The order potencies (dose producing a 50% of peak effect, in microg) of tizanidine and clonidine were 1.8 and 0.75, respectively. With isobolographic analysis, tizanidine with lidocaine and clonidine with lidocaine showed significantly synergistic antinociceptive interaction. Potency ratio analysis and fractional analysis also confirmed the synergistic interaction. At the doses in the combinations showing comparable antinociception, tizanidine with lidocaine, unlike clonidine with lidocaine, did not affect motor function or blood pressure.

The study population included 2840 subjects. Adherence overall was poor: the range of mean unadjusted MPR values was 0.10-0.50, which indicated that, at best, the subjects were adherent to their index spasticity medications for 50% of their treatment periods. Unadjusted overall MPRs for buy zanaflex baclofen and tizanidine were 20.4% and 9.1%, respectively. Fewer than 5% of subjects changed oral spasticity medications. The results of logistic regression to identify determinants of adherence showed that subjects treated with tizanidine versus baclofen had 37.4% lower odds of adherence and that subjects with traumatic brain injury versus stroke had 77.5% lower odds of adherence. The odds of adherence increased with age and with preindex contracture or decubitus ulcer.

Among nonsmokers, the peak concentration (C(max)) and area under concentration-time curve from 0 to infinity [AUC(0-infinity)] of tizanidine did not differ significantly between females and males. However, the half-life (t(1/2)) was 9% shorter in female nonsmokers than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). In male smokers, the t(1/2) was 10% shorter and the weight-adjusted AUC(0-infinity) 33% smaller than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). The caffeine/paraxanthine ratio was 35-40% smaller (P = 0.001) buy zanaflex in male smokers than in nonsmoking males or females, but did not differ between males and females. Tizanidine lowered blood pressure and caused drowsiness significantly (P < 0.05) more in females than in either male groups. The effects on blood pressure were smallest in male smokers (P < 0.05).

zanaflex r180 dosage 2015-06-07

Pharmacological agents have been shown to be capable of inducing a pattern of rhythmic activity recorded in muscle nerves or motoneurons of paralyzed spinal cats that closely resembles the locomotor pattern seen in intact cats. Further work, using intraperitoneal or intrathecal injections, suggests that different neurotransmitters may be involved in various aspects of locomotor control, e.g., initiation buy zanaflex and modulation of the pattern. Although precursors, agonists or the neurotransmitters themselves of several systems have been investigated (noradrenergic, dopaminergic, serotonergic, glutamatergic), the noradrenergic system seems the most efficient in triggering locomotion in complete spinal cats, with the alpha-2 agonists (clonidine, tizanidine, oxymetazoline) being more potent than the alpha-1 agonist, methoxamine. Moreover, the potency of the drugs may depend on the time of application after the spinal lesion. In chronic spinal cats capable of spontaneous walking on hindlimbs on the treadmill, all neurotransmitters appear to exert distinct recognizable effects on the locomotor pattern. More recent work also suggests that the effects of drugs may differ significantly depending on the type of spinal lesion. For instance, clonidine further reduces the level of weight support during quadrupedal locomotion of cats with lesions of the ventral-ventrolateral funiculi, possibly due to an interference of clonidine with essential compensatory mechanisms used by these animals to walk. Such considerations as the type of drugs, type of lesions, and the time after the lesion will be important for future studies in spinal cord injured patients.

The effect of celecoxib on CYP1A2 activity (phenacetin O-deethylation buy zanaflex ) was first studied in vitro using human liver microsomes. This was followed by a randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over study in which 12 healthy volunteers were given celecoxib (200 mg twice daily) or placebo for 4 days. On day 3, a caffeine test was performed. On day 4, the subjects ingested 2 mg tizanidine. Plasma samples for the measurement of the concentrations of tizanidine, its metabolites and celecoxib were collected up to 24 h post-administration. Pharmacodynamic variables (e.g. blood pressure, subjective drowsiness and drug effect) were recorded up to 12 h post-adm.

Two methods are described for the simultaneous determination of tizanidine and rofecoxib in binary mixture. The first method was based on HPTLC separation of the two drugs followed by densitometric measurements of their spots at 311 nm. The separation was carried out on Merck HPTLC aluminium sheets of silica gel 60 F254 using toluene:methanol:acetone (7.5:2.5:1.0, v/v/v) as mobile phase. The buy zanaflex linear regression analysis data was used for the regression line in the range of 10-100 and 100-1500 ng/spot for tizanidine and rofecoxib, respectively. The second method was based on HPLC separation of the two drugs on the reversed phase kromasil column [C18 (5 microm, 25 cm x 4.6 mm, i.d.)] at ambient temperature using a mobile phase consisting of phosphate buffer pH 5.5 and methanol (45:55, v/v). Flow rate was 1.0 ml/min with an average operating pressure of 180 kg/cm2. Quantitation was achieved with UV detection at 235 nm based on peak area with linear calibration curves at concentration ranges 10-200 and 100-2000 microg/ml for tizanidine and rofecoxib, respectively. Both methods have been successively applied to pharmaceutical formulation. No chromatographic interference from the tablet excipients was found. Both methods were validated in terms of precision, robustness, recovery and limits of detection and quantitation. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Student's t-test were applied to correlate the results of tizanidine and rofecoxib determination in dosage form by means of HPTLC and HPLC method.

Guidelines from both the German and Spanish Neurology Societies for managing patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) spasticity emphasize the importance of setting clear objectives and use evidence levels and grades to support their recommendations. Swedish guidelines for MS spasticity also reflect the need to establish treatment aims and recommend use buy zanaflex of validated scales to measure symptom changes. Treatment of generalized MS spasticity, beyond physiotherapy, tends to begin with baclofen, tizanidine and/or diazepam, adding Sativex (THC:CBD) oromucosal spray for moderate-to-severe cases. The European Federation of Neurological Societies/European Academy of Neurology Taskforce on Spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis is currently reviewing the literature supporting the pharmacological treatment of MS spasticity and aims to publish recommendations in the near future to guide clinicians in their treatment choices.

Tizanidine, an alpha2-adrenergic receptor agonist with myospasmolytic action, is indicated for the treatment of back pain either as monotherapy or in combination with nonsteridal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Tizanidine (0.25-1.0 mg/kg) significantly produced analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect in acetic acid induced writhing in mice and carrageenan-induced paw edema in rats, respectively. The effects were comparable with clonidine (0.25 and 0.50 mg/kg), another alpha2-agonist. Yohimbine (1 mg/kg), alpha2-adrenergic antagonist reversed the effect of tizanidine. Tizanidine (0.25 mg/kg) and clonidine (0.25 mg/kg) significantly potentiated the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effect of NSAIDs (nimesulide, meloxicam and naproxen). Tizanidine (1 mg/kg) did not alter basal pH, acidity (free and total) of gastric content and did not produce any mucosal injury buy zanaflex in fasted rats. Tizanidine (1 mg/kg) significantly reduced meloxicam (UD50 3.21 mg/kg), nimesulide (UD50 24.52 mg/kg) and naproxen (UD50 14.10 mg/kg)-induced ulcerogenic effect (ulcer index, pH and free/total acidity). It is expected that tizanidine exerted gastrotprotection through stimulation of gastric and central alpha2-adrenergic receptors. Present investigation suggested that tizanidine not only enhance the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect of NSAIDs but also improved gatstrointestinal tolerability of NSAIDs through modulation of central alpha-2-receptors. From this study, it can be speculated that tizanidine and NSAID combination therapy would prove to be a novel approach to treat nociceptive/inflammatory conditions with improved gastric tolerability of NSAIDs.

The prepared microcapsules were white, free flowing and spherical in shape with the particle size varying from 175.92 +/- 9.82 to 194.94 +/- 14.28 mu. The t60% of TIZ release from microcapsules was found to be 2.39+/-0.6, 3.39+/-0.6 and 4.55+/-0.8 h respectively for formulation TIZ1, TIZ2 and TIZ3 while their tablets i.e., T-TIZ1, T-TIZ2, T-TIZ3 and marketed SR were in 5.28+/-1.5, 6.86+/-0.6, 8.25 +/-0.6 and 3.75+/-1.20 h respectively indicating more extension of time in tablet than microcapsules. The mechanism of drug release from tizanidine microcapsules and their tablets were studied by using Higuchi and Korsmeyer-Peppas models. The r-value for TIZ1, TIZ2 and TIZ3 indicates diffusion controlled with first order kinetic. The value of exponent coefficient (n) for T-TIZ1, T-TIZ2 and T-TIZ3 were found to be 0.844, 0.901 and 0.914 indicating anamolous, case-II and case-II transport release mechanism respectively.

Pharmacological manipulation of the excitatory amino acid receptors is likely to be of benefit in important and common diseases of the nervous system. Only a few of the currently available drugs that modify excitatory neurotransmission, such as remacemide, lamotrigine, and tizanidine, have an acceptable therapeutic index. The identification of numerous receptor subtypes, topographic variabilities of distribution, and multiple modulatory sites will provide Levaquin Reviews a true challenge to the neuropharmacologist.

Intrathecal tizanidine, clonidine, or the combinations increased the tail-flick latency in dose- and time-dependent fashion without affecting motor function. The order potencies (dose producing a 50% of peak effect, in microg) of tizanidine and clonidine were 1.8 and 0.75, respectively. With isobolographic analysis, tizanidine with lidocaine and clonidine with lidocaine showed Vermox 30 Mg significantly synergistic antinociceptive interaction. Potency ratio analysis and fractional analysis also confirmed the synergistic interaction. At the doses in the combinations showing comparable antinociception, tizanidine with lidocaine, unlike clonidine with lidocaine, did not affect motor function or blood pressure.

The case of a 57-year-old white female who was found deceased at home by her husband is presented. A suicide note was found at the scene. No remarkable findings were observed at autopsy. Comprehensive toxicological analysis of the heart blood identified ethanol (0.16 g/dL), diazepam (1.1 mg/L), and tizanidine (2.3 mg/L). Blood concentrations of tizanidine following therapeutic use do not exceed 0.025 mg/L. The medical examiner ruled that the cause of death was combined ethanol and multiple drug intoxication, and the manner of death was suicide.

We conducted a retrospective study of the effect of continuous infusion of tizanidine via a feeding tube on the severe systemic muscle hypertonia in patients with the mixed type of tetraplegia. We mixed tizanidine with milk or other enteral nutrients and administered the mixture via a naso-duodenal tube at a constant infusion rate several hours to 5 patients with the mixed type of tetraplegia showing severe uncontrolled systemic hypertonia under intermittent treatment with oral muscle relaxant drugs.

The medicinal treatment of spasticity includes use of oral treatments (baclofène and tizanidine), botulinum toxin, intrathecal baclofène and local application of alcohol or phenol. However, spasticity may not be uncomfortable and may even be useful. Therefore, all spastic diseases do not systematically require treatment. First-line treatments (oral treatments and botulinum toxin) can be considered depending on the local or diffuse nature of the spasticity and depending on the etiology.

A crystallization series of tizanidine hydrochloride, used as a muscle relaxant for spasticity acting centrally as an α(2)-adrenergic agonist, yielded single crystals of the free base and the hydrochloride salt. The crystal structures of tizanidine [systematic name: 5-chloro-N-(imidazolidin-2-ylidene)-2,1,3-benzothiadiazol-4-amine], C(9)H(8)ClN(5)S, (I), and tizanidine hydrochloride {systematic name: 2-[(5-chloro-2,1,3-benzothiadiazol-4-yl)amino]imidazolidinium chloride}, C(9)H(9)ClN(5)S(+)·Cl(-), (II), have been determined. Tizanidine crystallizes with two almost identical molecules in the asymmetric unit (r.m.s. deviation = 0.179 Å for all non-H atoms). The molecules are connected by N-H···N hydrogen bonds forming chains running along [2 ̅11]. The present structure determination corrects the structure determination of tizanidine by John et al. [Acta Cryst. (2011), E67, o838-o839], which shows an incorrect tautomeric form. Tizanidine does not crystallize as the usually drawn 2-amino-imidazoline tautomer, but as the 2-imino-imidazolidine tautomer. This tautomer is present in solution as well, as shown by (1)H NMR analysis. In tizanidine hydrochloride, cations and anions are connected by N-H···Cl hydrogen bonds to form layers parallel to (100).

Microinjection of tizanidine into the substantia nigra pars reticulata or entopeduncular nucleus reduces muscle tone in genetically spastic rats. The effect of tizanidine is related to alpha 2-adrenergic mechanism since yohimbine, an alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist, and not prazosin, an alpha 1-adrenergic antagonist, attenuates the muscle relaxation produced by the drug. These results signify basal ganglia output stations as possible sites whereby tizanidine acting via alpha 2-adrenergic mechanism exerts its muscle relaxant action.

Twenty-three placebo-controlled studies (using baclofen, dantrolene, tizanidine, botulinum toxin, vigabatrin, prazepam and threonine) and thirteen comparative studies met the selection criteria. Only thirteen of these studies used the Ashworth scale, of which only three of the six placebo-controlled trials and none of the seven comparative studies showed a statistically significant difference between test drugs. Spasms, other symptoms and overall impressions were only assessed using unvalidated scores and results of functional assessments were inconclusive.
